Editors' Review

This step-by-step file duplicate finder will help you quickly locate and delete redundant files; however, we recommend that novices proceed with caution when it comes to deleting any found duplicate files.

Easy Duplicate Finder uses a three-step process to quickly and easily locate and remove duplicate files from your system. Simply add the folders you wish to scan and define the file mask (all files, JPEG, MP3) from the drop-down menu. Click the Start button in Step 2 and the program very quickly displays any found duplicates. While the program is scanning your system, you can actively watch the numbers of files scanned, original files to duplicates, and the space used by said files. Using the export button, we were able to easily export the program's findings. Finally, we had to decide what to do with the files. We had the option of deselecting all files, renaming them, moving them to a folder, and deleting selected files. We went through each option, and all worked perfectly. The Settings menu gives you two file-comparison options (CRC32 and byte-by-byte) and help is available through the publisher's Web site.

The program does add extra desktop icons without asking and we had to manually remove some items after the program was uninstalled. Still, Easy Duplicate Finder proved to be a very thorough and reliable file-management tool, but because of the risk of accidentally deleting important files, we only recommend this program for more-experienced users.

"Deletes files that are not duplicates - installs adware"

November 16, 2014  |  By vvocfz234

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

User interface looks nice, but that is all - who cares when it does not work.
Tried both Windows and Mac Versions - see the CONS section.

Cons

I had to read the negative reviews before using this one!
I lost all my data - this is not duplicate finder it is mass file destroyer!!!!

Summary

I really would pass this one - does not work and installs adware.

"Easy to use and intuitive duplicate finder"

November 14, 2014  |  By GPera

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

I like the interface and how it's easy to scan for duplicates and delete them. I downloaded this program today, so I'm still exploring it.

Cons

Nothing I can see, but the trial limit is too limiting.

Summary

Looks like a good duplicate finder with many options. Worth getting.

"Tries to take over your computer with AVG garbage..."

October 29, 2014  |  By proton8d

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

None really.

Cons

Seemed to work well enough until you realize that you only get to eliminate 10 files TOTAL before the trial expires...
Everything else! I joined the site just to post this negative review. The software installed a slew of AVG products without my true consent. I even unchecked the box that asks to install some during the installation process and it seems to have installed a bunch anyways. It changed my search engine to AVG, it closed all my open browser windows and tabs, making me lose 4 browsers worth of tabs. It is horribly invasive and I wish I had NEVER installed it. Users beware.

"Intuitive and functional"

October 20, 2014  |  By Corn146

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.7.0.368

Pros

Features, speed, ease of use, GUI

Cons

Price, but all good things cost money

Summary

I've tried many duplicate finders, and most of them lacked something. Easy Duplicate Finder had everything I wanted and proved to be a powerful, fast and intuitive program. It's not cheap, but it's worth the money.

"Trial is way too short, can't tell if it's worth buying"

September 22, 2014  |  By Polarballs

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

Pros

Looked nice, scanned quickly.

Cons

'trial' was for 10 files, That's like taking a car for a 100 foot test drive..

Summary

"Fast, easy to use and reliable"

September 15, 2014  |  By MightyShah

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

Pros

This program is very fast as it took very little time scanning my 1TB drive. It also did a very good job and deleted many duplicates

Cons

No cons. The trial is a bit too limited (only 10 deletions), but it's not too bad.

Summary

If anyone is looking for a duplicate finder that is fast and easy to use, I recommend this one.

"'Bait and Switch' to pay to use"

August 23, 2014  |  By NewOrderrr

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

Pros

Found several duplicate files after a 3 hours search

Cons

After a three hour search done across 3 external hard drives, when I went to click on one of the files if listed as a duplicate, I got a pop-up message that read that I exceeded the number of uses I had available for the product, and should buy the 'pro' version. I only clicked on ONE file and I got this message. When I uninstalled it, I got a browser pop up offering that I should buy it at a discounted $30 price.

Summary

It isn't even 'trial-ware', since I could not perform even ONE action after the file scan without being prompted to purchase the final version.

If there was a restriction, such as only allowing 10 actions per day, then maybe I would try to use it, but no one should consider this anything but 'bait and switch' type of product.

"Intuitive and fast duplicate finder"

August 15, 2014  |  By RH1020

 |  Version: Easy Duplicate Finder 4.6.0.352

Pros

1. Intuitive interface
2. Fast and accurate scanning
3. Lots of file management options
4. iTunes integration

Cons

None at all

Summary

I love Easy Duplicate Finder because it's true to its name (very easy to use) and offers advanced duplicate finding options at the same time. I mostly use it to manage duplicate songs and I appreciate the fact that it can sync with iTunes and Windows Media. I also like how the Assistant tool lets me to quickly set default options for managing my duplicates.

Updated on Aug 15, 2014

I had log-in problems and used my other account (the one I use for Mac software) to post the review. Now it appears that the same review is posted under two accounts because of the website glitch. Sorry about that and please don't consider the reviews spam. I really use EDF and I enjoy it a lot.
